Jon Jones Still Has Work To Do At Light Heavyweight, According To Dana White

The future for Jon Jones is likely at heavyweight. But, for now, the UFC light heavyweight champion still has work to do in the division.

UFC president Dana White talked about the future of “Bones” following his win over Rashad Evans Saturday night in the main event of UFC 145: Jones vs. Evans.

Jon Jones is a physical specimen. The guy is huge at 205 pounds. He’s out there doing things, and not only is he a big guy, he’s super athletic. He was throwing elbows like they were hands (Saturday). But he needs to stay at 205, he can make 205. This is where he needs to stay. Once he cleans out a division and (expletive) starts getting a little old and stale, then maybe he makes that move to heavyweight.

Jones has a future title match set with Dan Henderson, White announced Saturday night. Henderson secured a shot at the belt via his win over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua last year.
